Chalk another point up for streaming services, as Marriott is planning to add Netflix to 300 locations by the end of next year. Almost a decade ago we witnessed the decline of video rental stores, are we on the cusp of seeing broadcast television fade away too?
Marriott is really on to something with the Netflix initiative, in the opinion of Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. It’s affordable, offers hundreds of titles, and is familiar to a lot of people. Why even pay the cost of cable? People don’t stay in hotels to watch the same television they can watch at home. Usually, hotel guests are on vacation or business, and aren’t interested in familiarizing themselves with the local channel layout. Netflix however, is largely universal and let’s users choose exactly what and when they want to watch. Sure, you can’t get live sports via the streaming juggernaut, but isn’t that what the hotel bar is for?
Don’t be surprised that if by the end of this decade, streaming service is the standard for hotels. You may still be able to access regular television, but much like the phone books that are still collecting dust in hotel desk drawers, it’ll be there as a formality.
Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, there’s a heart, and now there’s a new Full House reboot to help tide you over. Children of the nineties everywhere can rejoice about the breaking news today that Full House is coming back on Netflix. The reboot will be called Fuller House and will feature original starring characters Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber in their respective roles of DJ, Stephanie, and Kimmy.
This time around DJ is pregnant but has found herself widowed asserts fans at AnastasiaDate. Stephanie and Kimmy move in to help DJ raise the two boys she already has and the new baby on the way. John Stamos will be producing the show and will also guest star as Uncle Jesse from time to time.
Full House originally aired for eight years up until its closing season in 1995. The storyline focused around three men, Danny, his brother in law Jesse, and Joey. The three men together help raise Danny’s three girls after Danny finds himself widowed. Even though the show has been off the air for 28 years it has still maintained a strong fan base that have been asking for a revival over the last few decades. Stamos announced the return of Full House of Jimmy Kimmel and stated that he is hopeful they can get a lot of the original cast to return for guest spots.
